are maybe. early chatter centered on u.n. ambassador susan rice, but her public role and controversial atements in the wake of the bill benghazi attacks could make a potential confirmation process through the senate and a very rocky one. no secret senator john kerry, head of the senate foreign relations committee would be interested in a job, though his open senate seat would trigger another special election in massachusetts. the democrats holding a solid majority in the senate, it could be something the white house would be open to explore. >> maybe the president is willing to into the possibility of using -- losing a senate seat if you want some bad enough. >> treasury secretary timothy geithner expressed his desire to return to private life. whiskey tax cuts set to expire and sequestration living, his departure is lated to be delayed. >> people like secretary geithner hve put a lot of energy into the issues related to the fiscal cliff, and they're going to want to see it through. >> the same is true of defense secretary leon panetta who ped with congress to find a solution to automa

, it just adds to these continuing layers of a narrative. if we are to expect that the u.n. ambassador, potentially the future secretary of state didn't have access and wasn't involved in discussions five days on from the attacks talking about the scenario of the terrorists the fact that there was no protest she talked about sunday morning show, then we have a serious problem. >> the picture in your head is she is handed a packet of paper. she reads it over, says thank you and goes and delivers it to the media. is that how it works? there is some sort of briefing, it's more than papers there is a discussion about what happened in which someone that is going to be the secretary of state should ask questions. correct? >> right. absolutely much the idea that somehow, you know, she slipped one page briefing memo with some talking points that by the way have been edited constantly apparently since the cia produced the basic intelligence, the raw intelligence from the field talking about what had been happening, it doesn't add up. and nothing happens in washington, you know, in a bubble. it'
